news alert. a short-term fix for obamacare that could leave you taxpayer holding the bag. some say it looks like a bailout for the insurance companies. martha: that's a good way to start the day. i'm martha maccallum. reports that the white house could cut a deal so insurance companies could get their money since the white house doesn't have the back end setup to get paid. the insurance companies would estimate the government, here is what it will cost to cover x, y and z. both sides would cut a check on the honor system. bill: americans have 19 days to sign up and ebb roll to get coming for 2014 and the insurance companies need to get paid. you need to keep them on board. here we go. they call it a workaround in washington. you could call it a -- a bailout. >> the subsidies are not paid from the government to each individual person. they are actually going to be paid from the government to the insurance companies on behalf of each individual person. the web site supposed to figure that out. and then it figures the subsidy and tells the understand company. it's not even built yet.
and brand new stories you will sear here first. jon: the obamacare website gets a makeover. new options are able if you're shopping. with deadline looming do the updates matter? >>> wild weekend weather across the u.s. and more is on the way. meteorologist maria molina on where people should be preparing now. >>> silicon valley versus washington. the nation's top tech companies teaming up to send a message to uncle sam. ease up on all snooping. it is all "happening now." jon: well the obamacare website getting a face-lift but ongoing problems with the federal exchange may be more than skin deep. i hope you had a good weekend. good morning to you. i'm jon scott. jenna: does obamacare cover facelifts? is that a question we're leading with today. jon: let's hope not. >> hi, everybody. i'm jenna lee. healthcare.gov has a new look if you check it out online. it lets shoppers see insurance plans before they buy and whether they qualify for tax subsidies to lower costs. there are so-called back end problems the way customers get information to insurance companies may mean some people who think
: thank you, mr. speaker. mr. speaker, since obamacare implementation began on october 1, the president has spent much f his time talking about the malfunctioning website. however, i would remind the president of his own words several weeks ago. obamacare is more than just a website. the website was supposed to be the easy part. and the more people sign on to it, they will be made aware of the real problems with obamacare. in fact, when the millions of americans currently losing their health care plans try to log on will be care.gov, they met with drastically increased emiums, skyrocketing out-of-pocket cost, and reduced access to the doctors and hospitals they know. these problems are in direct contrast to the repeated promises made by the president. my constituents are rightly concerned with these broken promises and they are regularly contacting me and my office to voice their concerns. for instance, gillian in sparta, tennessee, wrote to me, and i quote, every year in the past my health care insurance has increased by small percentages. sometimes 5%, sometimes by 7%. this past week
the talk we have had up until now has been about premiums that people pavement president claimed obamacare would save the family $2,500 a year he was talking about premiums. that didn't happen. and now we're fining that people are getting into really high deductibles, $5,000, $10,000, $12,000 for a couple, and when that happens, if you're a couple and you have to pay a $10,000 deductible and you don't have a big health crisis during a year, you're paying for all of your healthcare costs under obamacare, and people are saying, wait a minute. this is not what we thought would happen. >> what is interesting -- you're quite right, we have been focusing on what's my premium questioning to look like, but when you go to the car deal and he gives you a monthly payment and it doesn't factor in the fact you have to pay more up front to get the monthly payment, and then the buyer's remorse. do we get to the point where we'll get buyers to have remorse or just throw up their hands and look elsewhere? >> we haven't gotton to the point where enough people have new policies policies and are experiencing

the wall street journal today. obamacare mission accomplished. i will not go it -- go through it again for our viewers. this briefing, did you get that sense? guest: it was not, because they get a huge emphasis on, we still have a lot of work to do, this is by no means a perfect system, we have got it to where we wanted, but there are still a lot of things that need to be fixed. this is still an ongoing process to make this thing work better and better. they still it knowledge there are a lot of parts of the website they need to continue to work on. saying, yes, we did it, everything is great, and we will take off now. host: what is the measure of success to look at? guest: insurance companies, are they getting the accurate information they need in order to enroll people and give them their coverage, receive the payments from those getting subsidies, and that will be -- starting january 1, how many people will actually have insurance under this law, how may people are successful going to the doctor and paying the bills, insurance companies getting copayments and all of those things. we

republicans disapprove of the obamacare or affordable care act. we actually at half of our polling a thousand people about questions related to at fordable care ago. the other half about obamacare. essentially the numbers are about the same. and democrats were significantly more likely to support. >> woodruff: any greater sense of why people, why these young people feel so strongly? >> yeah, there was-- we're not actually too surprised by this. for the last several cycles that we've polled, we've seen the overall level of trust between young people and the powers within washington, d.c. whether the administration, republicans, democrats in congress, actually kind of lose trust every single day. so number one, coming out of washington, d.c. would have a lard time getting traction among millennials. also when you take a step back. when you think about the messages that millennials have been hearing, it is less about them, the benefits to them. it is more about it is necessary for them to join in order to compensate for older, sicker americans. so i don't think the narrative has been particularl
